7 Tips For Achieving Your Business Goals In 2016


If your New Year’s resolution is to achieve business goals, you are in the right place. I’ve helped hundreds of businesses reach their goals, and I can teach you how to do it too. In this post, I am going to share seven tips that will help you reach your business goals in 2016:

Set SMART Goals

Setting SMART goals is a great way to keep your business on track. SMART stands for:

  • Specific – Your goal should be clear and concise, with no room for interpretation.
  • Measurable – You should be able to determine whether or not you have achieved your goal based on specific metrics that are relevant to it. You may also want to include a deadline in which the goal must be met by so that you can monitor its progress over time (for example, “By February 1st 2017, I will increase traffic from organic search by 15% compared with January 2016” or “By March 31st 2017, I will have 100 new customers who purchased my product and signed up for my newsletter”). This allows us both an opportunity to check in regularly so I know if progress is being made as well as help me make adjustments if needed along the way!
  • Achievable – Don’t set yourself up for failure by setting unrealistic expectations; instead focus more on what could realistically happen rather than what might happen under ideal circumstances – this way there won’t be any surprises later down the road when things don’t go according to plan!

Align With The Right People

The next step is to align yourself with the right people.

You’re not going to get very far if you try to do everything on your own, so it’s important that you build a team around yourself and find other people who are also working towards similar goals. You can do this by:

  • Finding like-minded individuals through social media or networking events,
  • Hiring employees who share your vision for success (and treat them well), or even
  • Partnering with organizations that have similar values as yours!

Be Consistent

Consistency is key to success. It’s the difference between a business that succeeds, and one that doesn’t. The best way to make sure you achieve your goals is by being consistent in pursuit of them.

Here are some examples:

  • If you want to lose weight, exercise consistently and eat healthy foods instead of junk food or fast food all the time.
  • If you want to get better at playing chess, play chess every day or at least several times per week–don’t just do it once per month or even less often than that!
  • If your goal is working out more often at the gym (or some other place), then sign up for classes so that there’s no excuse not go because “I don’t know what kind of classes they offer there.”

Be Flexible

Being flexible is an important part of achieving your goals. If you’re not flexible, it’s likely that you won’t be able to adapt to changing circumstances or opportunities as they arise.

Be flexible about:

  • Your goal itself–it may change over time, but that doesn’t mean it’s not still a good goal to have!
  • The tactics needed in order to achieve the goal–what worked last year might not work this year (or vice versa). Don’t get stuck on one specific approach; try out different strategies until something works for you.
  • The timeline for achieving the goal–the best laid plans often go awry due to unexpected circumstances like illness or family emergencies, so don’t get discouraged if things take longer than expected!

Find New Ways To Solve Problems

If you have a problem with your business, it’s time to find new ways to solve it. One of the best ways to do this is by looking for new solutions. For example, if your website isn’t performing as well as you’d like and needs more traffic from search engines like Google, try using different keywords or creating content that uses those keywords in its title tag and meta description.

Do More With Less

You can do more with less by being resourceful, using technology to your advantage and thinking outside the box.

Here are some examples of how you could achieve this goal:

  • Use a virtual phone system that allows calls to go directly to voicemail when no one is there to answer them. This will help cut down on unnecessary calls and save money on long distance charges if people need information from you but don’t have time or inclination for a lengthy conversation. It also frees up staff time for other tasks such as writing blog posts or managing social media updates about what’s going on at your company (which we’ll discuss later).
  • If you’re running an e-commerce site where customers place orders online instead of over the phone, invest in some high quality video tutorials explaining how different products work so they can watch those instead of calling customer service representatives who may not know much about what they’re selling anyway!

Never Stop Learning!

The most important part of achieving your goals is learning. Learning from your mistakes, learning from other people’s mistakes, and even learning from successes. You can’t just go into something blind and expect to succeed. You have to plan out what you’re going to do and how it will work before you even begin so that if there are any problems or setbacks along the way (and there will be), then at least you know how best to address them.

Learning is essential for success!

Follow these 7 tips and you will achieve your business goals in 2016

  • Don’t worry about what other people are doing
  • Be confident in your abilities
  • Don’t be afraid of failure
  • Learn from your mistakes
  • You are the only person who can achieve your goals!
  • Take time to celebrate your successes


We hope this list of tips has given you some ideas for how to achieve your business goals in 2016. Remember, it’s not about making big leaps; it’s about taking small steps every day to get closer to where you want to be. The key is consistency! If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our experience with entrepreneurs around the world, it’s that they all have something in common: They are tenacious and persistent when faced with obstacles. So keep working hard on those resolutions until they become habits – then make sure they stay with you forever!
